[Relatively] LIVE Blog: Episode 2.12 – “The Hail Mary”
Good news – we can get new family and friends pour ourselves a dram and, through the magic of technology, enjoy it together! Each Saturday at 9:00 p.m., we’ll be LIVE blogging the episodes to bring you a two-screen experience into the world of Outlander. Like the Outlander Cast podcast, it will be SPOILER FREE for non-book readers.
So get all your post-18th Century gadgets ready and settle in, because the best things in life should be shared with a buddy. Hi, buddy.
Now let the show begin… well, sort of. Disclaimer after the jump.
Disclaimer: Life intervened again this week and I won’t be able to join you in real-time. Dinna fash, our reactionary recap will come to you by the time our Canadian Obsessenachs have had a chance to watch on Sunday.
SUNDAY NIGHT UPDATE! Thank you for your patience. Due to a comical twist of fate, when we were finally able to watch this episode it was hailing outside. No lie. I blame Black Jack Randall. Because, why not. On with the show . . .
[9:00 pm] It is surreal to watch a show about Scottish natives battling for their independence only days after the historic and game-changing Brexit Day in the UK. Except Scotland voted to remain . . . *wink, wink to a certain US presidential candidate* [9:02 pm] Weekly title card riddle: thank you, World of Outlander, for reminding me that we are inching closer to being emotionally gutted by Culloden in the finale. Because I had almost forgotten. Also, the powerhouse team of Ira Steven Behr and Anne Kenney have penned this episode. For me, that sets the baseline for my kilt rating of this episode at no less than a four.
